With International Women’s Day on March 8, 2020, Global Graphene Group (G3) is excited to celebrate our co-founder, Dr. Aruna Zhuma, who recently passed the milestone of 475 US patents issued and applications filed in her career. Dr. Zhamu is recognized as the world’s number 2 graphene inventor. She is the President of Honeycomb Battery Company, a subsidiary of Global Graphene Group, and the VP of New Product / Process Development at G3.Dr. Zhamu’s impact on the scientific community is massive. She has filed more than 215 graphene-related US patents. She now holds over 450 US patents and patent applications focused on graphene – more than any other female scientist. She is one of only a handful of female scientists to hold over 150 US patents. Dr. Zhamu led Global Graphene Group to become the world’s largest manufacturer of single-layer graphene oxide. She co-invented graphene thermal film, graphene-enabled sulfur cathode, high-capacity anodes and graphene supercapacitors.
“Supporting women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) is very important to me,” said Dr. Zhamu, who holds a BS and PhD from Beijing University of Aeronautics & Astronautics, China. “Being a woman in science, I’ve found you need to be strong and confident in yourself to be successful. Then you can become a leader and truly make an impact.”
“It’s very important to me to support other women in science and support girls pursuing STEM education,” said Zhamu. “Female scientists have so much to offer our chosen fields of study, and we’ll continue to be a big part of the future in technology.”
